I wish I could meet them... But if I do so, it will be all unorganised,‘ he told reporters.However, Khan said, “I am not one for big birthday parties... But it has become a tradition... It is the family and friends who come over to wish,‘ he said.“I am an actor who gets paid for his job. I hope the amount of love continues. I am happy that apart from me and my family, others are also excited about my birthday. I am touched.“I never had big dreams. I wanted to work hard and be accepted. I am happy and thankful that I have got more than what I have asked for. I will never do anything to tarnish this happiness that I have achieved,‘ said the 'King of Bollywood', who has acted in more than 70 films and ruled the industry for over two decades.Photos: The Daily Star, Reuters, AFP, TNP
